Joe is not the same player, injury and the amount of years playing top level hurling has taken its toll, heíll never get back to that level again I fear, I could be wrong though.

but heíd be an unreal sub to bring on


You clearly didnít see any of the league where he was the best hurler in the country

Playing him in a sub role?

Laughable comment

Ok, league is for playing in, Iíll judge him this year come championship, heís unreal but I feel heís had a long go at such a high level club and county that he like most, he  will dip in form.

So your now predicting a dip in his form when does come back?

Is that in the sub role youíve assigned for him?

Leave Hurling alone FFS

If itís not broken donít fix it

Instead of pricking around with this non issue,instead focus on getting the likes of Carlow,Laois,Kildare,Meath,Westmeath up to a point where they can compete with the top 8 or 9

And for the love of god,will someone stage an intervention with Offaly hurling

I don't like this talk of intervention - look at where that got us with the injection of funds into Dublin !

The best means of improving "2nd tier" hurling counties is for these counties to engage top coaches from established counties
- obviously there needs to be raw material to work with and top coaches are not two a penny.
Examples where this has worked in the past:
Dermot Healy was key to Offaly's breakthrough in 1981
Georgie Leahy, RIP, did great work with Laois in the 1980s.

I wasnít suggesting a Dublin sized financial support for Offaly,theyíve already had a bailout in relation to OíConnor Park

Best outside coaches cost money,the money needs to spent at grassroots level in terms of more GDAís and support for hurling in those counties

Healy would have had very little to work with at adult level if the likes of Bro.Dennis hadnt done the work at juvenile level and post primary level

Meanwhile the Munster Council expect around 35k at Limerick/Cork and 22k at Tipp/Waterford hurling games.
Entertainment guaranteed and nice Stadiums too.

And Conpetiitive dog eat dog games with a huge amount at stake

Last weekend there were games in Cork City ,Kilkenny City  and Waterford City,all home venues for teams which helped the walk up,last minute crowd.

Iíd expect the Waterford v Tipp game to break 25k

The Tipp v Clare game is nearly sold out already,better to have the sold out signs up in Waterford and Ennis,home games,packed house,hype than in a half full Gaelic grounds or thurles

I remember playing Naas about 15 years ago in a practice match. We were senior at the time, but they gave us a right trimming, as far as I remember. They had a good, big clubhouse, and great facilities. I assume it's shared w/ football?
Aside from the collapse of Portlaoise underage hurling - which is a disaster for hurling around the middle of the county, I think - there is good work being done underage in Portarlington. Unfortunately, however, this seems destined to be strangled by the football-dominated club over there. Perhaps much like Slieve Margy in the south east.
Another thing - just what is the point in stuffing our development squads with dual players, when most of them will end up choosing football in the end? Seems like a terrible waste of time and effort from a hurling point of view.

Considering we have only 1 u15 team this year cut from 2 teams in previous years,the charge of stuffing a hurling development squad with dual players doesnít hold true any more

What is the dual count on the 15s / 16s? do we know? is there any Dual Minors?

There are no dual players on the minor hurling,football managment gave them a very clear choice

Donít know about the 16ís

Possibly 3/4 on both u15 teams

I suppose they're all dual players, and the best of them will be diverted to football. Same as happens here outside the strong hurling areas.

There are a few hurling enclaves in Kildare that are quite passionate and wouldn't be football strongholds. Their problem is that it is only a small number of clubs - Naas, Coill Dubh. I think most of their senior hurling team play for Naas. Big county with plenty of money and resources. Wouldn't be beyond possibility that they can catch up with the likes of Laois.

Naas have teams hurling in underage leagues in Kilkenny

Lost to eventual All-Ireland finalists by five points.
By the way, ye can have Delaney back anytime ye want. The ****.

What did he do now?!
Essentially told Stephen Loughnane that he wasnít wanted for Shinrone. He transferred to Loughrea and is now with the Galway u20s I believe, after having been with the Offaly u20s at the start of the year. Told Shinrone players not to play with Offaly. Also wouldnít let any of the other Offaly u20s from Shinrone train with Offaly.
As you can see, thatís worked out very well. 😂😂😂

Well done Agent Delaney
